We had the best spinach crab dip ever. The muscles were fantastic. They have delicious craft beer and the food portions are large. Great food, and value. We had the scallops and fish cakes for mains and they were good too. We had no room for dessert but they looked delicious. Highly recommend.

Thank Denise M

We were, until today, long time customers of the Grand Banker. Having arrived around our usual time of 1100 there were plenty of tables. We placed our order...received coffee...The restaurant filled quickly and we were completely abandoned as customers. I lost count of how many tables, who arrived long after we did, were served their drinks and full meals. On two occasions a waitress appeared at our table to confirm order details and to assure me that the order was on the way. I can understand that bacon and eggs is a very complicated order..., however...A full 50 minutes went past before I walked out - never to return. Unfortunately this place has turned into a tourist trap. This long time customer will never return and will no longer recommend this place. Do enjoy your tourist dollar, tis a short season - I'll spend my time and money elsewhere.

i ordered the very special Grand Banker Burger which boasts the addition of lobster crowned with a grilled scallop on an 'artisan bun', which turned out to be a regular hamburger bun from the grocery store. when i queried the waitress about the bun, she was flippant. couldn't taste anything of the smoked mozzarella nor tarragon butter. how could such a line-up produce so little flavour?

Hi, thanks for taking the time to provide your'e feedback. I wanted to ensure you that our buns are not from the grocery store. We only use a brioche bun from a french bakery located about 15 minutes from the restaurant, Boulangerie la Vendeenne, http://tasteofnovascotia.com/members/boulangerie-la-vendeenne/. We apologize if the flavour wasn't there for you or something was off this day, as we take pride in this burger, that has caught the attention of and been featured on the Food Network. Please let us know if you are back in town and would like to try it again, or something else and it would be our pleasure to accomodated, info@grandbanker.com.

We loved the strawberry rhubarb martini and my husband enjoyed his old fashioned . I have to say they have the Best nachos !!! Lamb was good as well but the sides (potatoes and veg) lacked seasoning and were a bit under cooked. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, a great spot for drinks and food.

Grand Banker was recommended by local boat trip folk. We had the Seafood Quartet. Haddock, Salmon, Scallops, Prawns. Was our best yet seafood experience in Nova Scotia.
